Orange Dress


I was holding open my hoodie because I was trying to show you my orange corduroy dress. The color is so bright it messes with the iphone.

You can see the lace and fabric and poofy little gathered sleeves and such in this older detail photo.

Orange you glad?

March 31st 2010

It was raining yesterday and I didn't get any outfit details but I did get some nice ones of my makeup.




I did silver over entire lid and blue just on outer 1/3 and blended like a mad man.

My weekend was quiet. We went for some cupcakes... (hey I said I would I had to live up to my word.)



Waffle was a cuddle bug. Last year when I would put her in my hoodie she was only 4lbs and fit nicely. Omg she was so small here that her nose hadn't grown. It is now all pink. She hadn't grown into it yet.

not the best  one of me but it is of her!

Despite being 3times that size she still loves it.

Not too big to cuddle

The birthday wishes started coming. My inlaws sent this beautiful arrangement to my work.

Flowers from my inlaws

When I told you my mom was to blame for my polish collection I don't know if people really believed that. I swear it is all my mom's fault! :P

That is a giant 43lb thing of pumpkin fudge she made me too!



I also picked myself up some new slippers, check the kids section. These said size 4 but they fit my size 7 feet.. Waffle is petrified of the stuffed heads.

Apparently I fit into childrens slippers.

How was your weekend? What did you do? WHAT DID YOU EAT? (I am so hangry right now..)

Oh and PS tomorrow is my birthday. If you are so inclined you could take a picture of the current contents of your bag? Read more about my birthday wish here.

I love the color on that dress, plus I am a lover of all things corduroy.

Hope this year brings you love and health.
I emptied my bag for you 2 weeks ago, so you got an early present :)

Great great makeup, both yesterday and today, gotta love smokey looks.

Best slippers ever! Happy almost birthday!

Lisa said...

I adore that orange dress. I've always liked orange but felt that it never looked right on me. I ate a lot over this weekend. My favorite was when Andy picked me up one of the new pumpkin cupcakes from Sweet, so good!

Your mom is totally awesome. If she ever wants to adopt anyone let me know.

Love the orange dress with blue eye shadow, such a nice color combo.

hillary said...

Casey I'm so not gutsy enough to do that! I wore the silver and blue with that grey blazer. I wore a neutral eye with the orange.

I fear id look crazy ( and too much like a gator fan. I mean I am a gator but fear looking cray cray)

Iris said...

Happy birthday! Sorry it's late. Hope you have a fantastic birthday, celebrate in style Hillary!

It was my birthday last weekend and we also went to a wedding, so I ate a lot, had a lot of wine, and even managed to dance a bit! And one of my birthday presents from the in-laws was a cupcake cookbook from Hummingbird Bakery :)

Melissa said...

That dress looks AMAZING on you! I love it!

I'm glad you got some cupcakes. Life is much better with cupcakes.

I'm so sorry for not commenting and being late on this way - I'm so behind (not to mention that I've been away from Twitter for the most part too)! Hope you had the MOST special birthday celebration EVER!!!
